Boost brainpower with this delicious mocha-berry smoothie featuring three foods shown to help improve cognition and lift brain fog: blueberries, cocoa powder and coffee. (For kids, use decaf coffee or swap the coffee with milk.)

For a tasty spin, make a smart smoothie bowl. Place leftover smoothie contents (or the entire double portion) in the fridge, covered, for a few hours or overnight. The gelling effect of the chia seeds will transform your smoothie into a pudding-like consistency that’s perfect for a brainy bowl of goodness. Top with extra berries and/or yogurt and enjoy!
